 GUNS N' ROSES INVADE PARIS!; IN THEIR FIRST EVER PAY-PER-VIEW CONCERT
 EVENT; PRESENTED BY POLYGRAM DIVERSIFIED ENTERTAINMENT
 NEW YORK, April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Guns N' Roses, one of the biggest rock bands in the world, will telecast their Paris concert date on June 6 in their first ever worldwide television broadcast. Guns N' Roses Invade Paris! will be available on pay-per-view in the United States. Millions of fans unable to obtain tickets to Guns N' Roses' sold out worldwide tour will now have the opportunity to experience Guns N' Roses live.
 This special presentation will feature SOUNDGARDEN whose album "Badmotorfinger" has been certified gold. Well-known for their flair for the dramatic, Guns N' Roses has a few surprises in store for their fans including unannounced guests.
 Multi-platinum Grammy Award winners, Guns N' Roses, sold over 18 million copies of "Appetite For Destruction," their first major release. With the simultaneous release of "Use Your Illusion I & II" (another first time ever event), Guns N' Roses entered the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart at No. 1 and No. 2. Guns N' Roses are the first and only act to enter the charts at those positions. The single "Don't Cry," went gold, and "You Could Be Mine," featured in the blockbuster movie, "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," sold more than 1.5 million CD singles in the first 30 days of release.
 Guns N' Roses' "Use Your Illusion I & II" albums still reigned in the Billboard to ten as of the beginning of the year, with more than 15 million combined units sold in the United States and abroad. Both their European and U.S. tours have been sell-outs since they began.
 Doug Goldstein, Guns N' Roses' manager said, "Following the tremendous success of the releases 'Use Your Illusion I & II' as well as completing a sold out tour, Guns N' Roses felt this worldwide television event would enable them to reach millions of their fans who would otherwise not be able to see them to reach millions of their fans who would otherwise not be able to see them in a live show."
 PolyGram Diversified Entertainment is producing the event as well as presenting it on pay-per-view in the United States. PolyGram Television International is distributing the event throughout the rest of the world. Westwood One Radio will be simulcasting the event to hundreds of affiliate stations in the United States and Canada.
 "This promises to be the biggest rock pay-per-view event in history. I fully expect this Guns N' Roses telecast to exceed the numbers achieved by the Rolling Stones and the Who," said John Scher, president of PDE. "The mystique and curiosity surrounding Guns N' Roses concerts on their most recent tours adds a certain element of danger to a live telecast."
 "PolyGram Diversified Entertainment is producing this concert as it is meant to be -- a big event, with one of the world's biggest bands. We see it as an opportunity to break the 1 percent buyrate syndrome of pay-per-view concerts," stated PDE vice president, Jeff Rowland.
 PolyGram Diversified Entertainment, part of the New York division of PolyGram, the global entertainment and record company, is committed to producing a wide variety of pay-per-view events from "Sisters In The Name of Rap" to the "Metropolitan Opera's 25th Anniversary Gala at the Met." Their ability to interact with their record labels, marketing, merchandising, promotional services, film and video divisions gives PolyGram Diversified Entertainment the unique ability to create and position pay-per-view events for maximum success.
